oh yeh baby - pee your pants exciting this is!!!!

hells yeh! The comic is at the printers, it’ll be back soon and we’ll be hassling you all to buy it (and to sell em to everyone you know!), and I’m gonna take some to the new york comic con... and you’ll be able to buy it online, and all kinds of wonderful places...

hopefully both of us will have a table at the bristolcon too so come on down, I’ll be the one that smells of cider and is probably trying to violate anyone who turned up dressed as batman (you think im joking, just ask geoff, he knows thats what comic cons are for, like at brum with the summer batman - the knight was shorter!!!!!! hahahahaha, he was tiny.... i digress)

it’s on 100% recycled paper, with eco friendly vegetable oil based inks, it will be £2.50 or $5.00,with 75p postage if you buy it online. there will be a downloadable pdf with some strips in colour at some point, ’more details to follow yadda yadda yadda’ said ian......

thanks to everyone who has got involved, will get involved and helped in any way.

now you just gotta buy it!

and help with issue 2...... heeheehee

sooo exciting huh?

No Thing

No Thing
Current mood: satisfied


Some of you will now that this weekend the comics thing was in London. I had hoped to go along to this to check out some small press stuff and promote our upcoming comic.

Lou & I knocked up a flyer, but basically I couldnt get a decent number printed in a good quality in time. I just couldnt get my stuff sorted in time. This was a bit of a dissapoinment for me as Id let myself down.

Those of you that know me, may know that I had a load of money robbed from my bank account recently (more than my rents worth). like most things I brushed it aside and dealt with it (cant let it get you down after all). Evidently the 2 weeks its taken to get the money back from the bank had taken its toll on my general wellbeing. I lost my focus towards the end of last week as I didnt know what was going on with it all. So yeah now its all sorted and I’ll get back into the swing...

How Lou has persuaded me to do things for the last 2 weeks..

What your supposed bed may look like after losing a load of money and your brain with it...

m not making excuses because really I should have prepared and gone but just didnt.

I know for a few weeks now we’ve been saying its nearly done and you might be wondering where it is now, well truth be told it nearly is done, we have our page count sorted but we just need to get a few spare pages nailed & sorted. Rufus Dayglo was kind enough to draw a pin up for us over the weekend for inclusion and we pretty much just need to get one more page nailed before we confirm all the details.

This is a first foray into comics producing for me and Ive been really amazed by how much people have been able to help us out in the 2 months we’ve been doing this now. To be honest though I still dont really know much. If I havnt asked you already, if you have any tips for helping us to promote our comic once we have it ready to launch please let me know.

I have had too much easter chocolate at once and now I feel queasy. Im off to do some star jumps to burn the sugar a bit...

Kudos to you all,

Well over the last week we had enough strips in to put together our first issue!

Early next week I hope to confirm some of the finer points and write a bigger note!

Here’s a little look at the last strip we had in, The Last Treasure by Devil Monkey.

More details & full listing soon so keep an eye out.

Hope you all had a good week and a peaceful weekend.

Nearly done!


Well over the weekend we have now had enough pages in to go to print...

We hope to finalise details by the the end of the week as there is a bit more work to go, but it hopefully wont be much longer..

Here's a look at some of the stuff we now have in..

by Neil Merrett & Ewan Robertson.

by Andy Blundell

& finally...

By Lou & me,

Did anyone watch life in cold blood? David (who hapens to be patron of the world land trust) was on top form. The last part of the last episode really summed it up, but I cant find a short clip of it anywhere, so either have a look at the whole of the last episode on iplayer - if you have a spare hour - its available to watch until the end of tomorrow.

Or a shortened version of Davids message

Take Care

Its coming


Well its coming I tell you, we need to finish our strip and hopefully we will be getting a few more strips soon, then we will paginate it and get it ready for our printers. I am going to ask them to write us a note verifying that it is printed on recycled paper too.

Today was mothers day, but easter will be here soon so check out

Here is some work from another strip coming to us, called last treasure by
